In the one hundred and fifth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we download and install the Legion Companion app and let it guide us completely through the expansion, we run Death Knights through all the artifact quest lines, and then get stuck on Order Hall missions, we climb the trust tree, commit to having fun, and ignore all the haters that are already level 110 with iLevel 850 gear, Sláinte takes the official Legion Quiz to test his knowledge of the game and the lore of Warcraft, Molsan min-maxes his profession leveling by visiting the Darkmoon Faire, we calculate the most important stat when using external resources to select optimal gear, and we explain why all in-game mobs coincidentally named after Bitter and Salty are neither real nor officially endorsed by Blizzard.

Bitter and Salty is brought to you by Molsan and Sláinte.

In the one hundred and fourth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we enter the Legion in counterclockwise fashion, and run all the artifact quest lines, we venture into Stormheim together, and watch players cover quest objectives on their mounts, we decide if we want Gul’dan or Khadgar deleted from the game, or both, we wonder if Blizzard is putting us through too many scenarios, and not allowing us to play with our friends, we glide to the new fishing NPC for training and drowned mana, and we spend hours deciding on names for our Demon Hunters.

Bitter and Salty is brought to you by Molsan and Sláinte.

Legion

  • Artifact quest… Listen to Gul’dan

Molsan Changes His Mind

  • No more alt or co-mains

Artifacts

  • Artifact quest… Ret pally.
  • Stormheim, but not good for Tailoring

Starting Zones

  • Stormheim, Aszuna
  • Guy standing on the quest to make food and was yelled at in general chat
  • Nathanos Blightcaller

Fishing

  • Goblin Glider Kits… nice way to make gold (12g-15g per GGK)
  • Soar from Dalaran to the island to meet Conjurer Margoss
  • He is the Nat Pagle of Legion which is stupid
  • Margoss can train you, or Marcia Chase can unlock Legion fishing
  • Once you reach the island, Margoss gives you a quest… just turn around and fish in his floating pond
  • Goal is to fish up Drowned Mana from the pond
  • Use DM as currency for a pet and mount… similar to The Anglers in MoP

Demon Hunter Times

  • How do you pick a name

Pictures with Illidan

Salty BlizzCon Tip

  • Take pics of your friends

Bitter and Salty is brought to you by Molsan and Sláinte.

Gamescom interview with Ion Hazzikostas

  • Artifacts and artifact power will be relevant throughout Legion
  • 7.1 content discussion already coming in a few weeks
  • Admitted that content is being coded against STOCK UI

Content Longevity and Relevance

DDOS

  • What does it mean and why is WoW always down?

New Segment: Molsan is Embarrassed

In the one hundred and second World of Warcraft podcast episode, we return to Karazhan once again, for the third or fourth time, to visit our old friend Moroes, we calculate the version number for the Legion expansion that drops between 7.0 and 7.1 and determine the exact number of bosses that appear in the refurbished Karazhan dungeon raid, we learn that every single Alliance player was at the bottom of the gunship that abandoned Varian Wrynn as we break down the pre-patch, in-game cut-scene cinematics once again, we compare one disappointing Mage to one inspiring Warlock, and re-roll all of our talents to destruction out of pure embarrassment, and we completely redesign the World of Warcraft loot system, by removing all loot from the game.

Bitter and Salty is brought to you by Molsan and Sláinte.

RETURN TO KARAZHAN OMG

  • “Karazhan is coming back as a large five player dungeon with all nine bosses”
  • What did we see… Was this a pre-patch, pre-expansion, teaser before the expansion is even released? Blizzard is even confused… WE ARE ALREADY IN LEGION
  • Was that Moroes in the 7.1 teaser video?
  • We get nine bosses… Are we sure they are the same? Final boss will be Medivh?
  • Was this just to get folks to re-sub to play the best raid ever once again?
  • “This time around there won’t be a content drought” WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN

Blog Comment from Vlor

Hey guys.
Clearly Varian sacrificed himself to save us, our characters are on the ship. Just like Sylvanas retreated to save the horde players. It’s so obvious and you keep saying Varian didnt have to do it, such $%&#(*!%.

Cinematic Reactions Continued

  • So the Alliance players were at the bottom of the gunship doing who knows what
  • Didn’t hear the Demon Fel Reaver?
  • Jaina is a failure

Invasion Leveling

  • Why level a Hunter during Invasions? Is good?
  • Affliction vs. Destruction DPS… Zhend is inspiration
  • Warforged armor from invasions LOL

KatGhar is Back!

  • So while his Alliance friends were attacking demons alone, he was busy moving Dalaran to Karazhan
  • Why? Was it too far for him to teleport or ride a mount?
  • Jaina doesn’t want the Horde in Dalaran so she ragequits after the vote

LFR and Valor

  • Blackrock Foundry is on farm with Warlock

Molsan Suggests is Canceled for New Segment… Molsan Designs WoW

  • Change how loot works completely
  • Raids and dungeons ONLY drop/unlock cosmetic appearances

Email from Vaygon

Hey guys, great podcast again.

However I couldn’t help but notice Salty butcher the pronunciation of Tirion Fordring’s name a few times during the show. It’s Ford-Ring… NOT Forge-Ling, lol that makes him sound like a battle pet or something :p

Anyhow keep up the good work.

In the one hundred and first World of Warcraft podcast episode, we invade Azeroth with the Legion, and recall our experiences from both the Horde and Alliance perspectives, we wonder what Demon Hunters are like as we check the order status of the physical copy of the expansion, we recommend visiting the Darkmoon Faire on or before Legion for quests, tickets, and cards, Slainte cheats in heroics by climbing up walls and topping meters, Molsan ponders switching mains from Paladin to Warlock… or Warrior, but not Rogue, we visit our buddy Kael’thas who decides to drop two mounts after eight years of farming old content, and we reveal the true savior of World of Warcraft: Legion… Garrisons.

Legion is Here

  • Invasion events
  • All spoilers go here
  • We called everything
    • ____’s _____
    • ____’s _____
    • _______ the Warchief
    • _______ the King of Alliance?
    • All the Gnomes are dead, and you can now harvest druids for Legion herbs
    • We called it all!!
  • Do you believe in “Victory or Death”
    • So what happened… Did the Horde/Sylvanas betray the Alliance or are Alliance just stupid?
  • What are DH’s like?
    • DKs officially replaced
    • What is name of your DH
  • Jeremy Feasel from PCGamer interview
    • So much content scaling by level… Legion invasions scale “from level 10 to 100. So anybody that’s in that zone that’s even just leveling up can participate and can get loot from it that is potentially a loot upgrade that scales down to their level”
    • Garrisons Saved Legion
      • “If you were looking at this from very high top-down, and this was Warcraft 4, what would the demon RTS mission look like? And we took a look at the tech we had at the time for that, and it turned out that the garrison buildings were kind of our saviour on that one. One of the pieces of technology that allowed garrison buildings to work was our ability to swap entire huge structures into the world whenever we felt like it—we didn’t have that ability before and we had to do crazy terrain phasing and things like that that you’ve seen in the past and took a lot of production time.”

  • Dafyed (daf-yed aka David)

“I’m fairly certain that you can’t get out of the goblin starting area without leveling. Your only option may be to race change any other race to a goblin. But I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a minimum level for that service. And I’m certainly not spending real $ to find out. Thanks for providing content to my ears.”

Do We Have an Official Challenge in Legion pre-expansion pre-patch?

  • No… We need help

Molsan Suggests

  • Nobody listened to me so canceling this segment
  • Or… Play an Arms Warrior because Assassination Rogue is terrible
  • Or… Play an Affliction Warlock because you never lose health

Salty BlizzCon Tip

  • Don’t be THAT GUY
